Types of Harassment

Quid pro quo harassment is known as “this for that” harassment. This type of harassment is based on an employee’s acceptance or rejection of unwelcome sexual advances.  Examples of quid pro quo harassment can include a supervisor who denies an employee a promotion for refusing to be sexually cooperative.

Hostile work environment harassment can manifest from openly discussing sexual activities, telling offensive jokes, unnecessary touching or using indecent gestures. This type of behavior causes the workplace environment to be one that is intimidating and unwelcoming.

Quid pro quo and hostile work environment harassment is in violation of the DOL’s policies when:

  • The harassment is severe and persuasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would find hostile or abusive
  • The harassment impacts the employee’s psychological well-being
  • The harassment is physically threatening or humiliating
